Steve Rosenbaum: The New York Tech Scene Rocked Last Week.

There were so many deals, events, gatherings, and transactions – I hardly know where to begin. So, let me begin 15 years ago. That’s when Andrew Rasiej founded Mouse, an organization with a clear focus – to get good technology into New York’s Public Schools. Today, with the organization now celebrating 15 years – the students who were the beneficiaries of Mouse are now the founders of start ups that are driving New York to great tech highest.

WATCH: Homemade Lightsaber Can Burn Through Almost Everything

A fan of Star Wars, lasers and potentially dangerous experiments has posted a video of a homemade lightsaber. And yes, it can burn through stuff – terrifyingly well. Highlighted by TheNextWeb on Monday (during a traditional lull for tech news), the video shows YouTube user styropyro testing his 3W handheld laser on a variety of objects, and burning through them all. The laser is powered by two laptop batteries, and while it probably can’t slice off an upstart Jedi’s hand in one swipe, it’s a pretty dangerous beast. Styropyro writes on his YouTube page: “I usually try to refrain from using the term “lightsaber” when referring to my lasers but there really isn’t much else out there to describe this laser.” For further reading we recommend this XKCD ‘What If?’ article about how to fire lasers at the Moon to make it change colour

Teens Build Car Fueled By Social Media (VIDEO)

A group of high schoolers from Kansas City, Mo. are about to embark on a very special road trip, using a car fueled entirely by social media. (Yes, you heard that right.) According to WKMG Local 6 , teens involved in an after-school program called Minddrive — a non-profit that inspires at-risk teens by focusing on electric car design — took a Volkswagen Karmann Ghia from 1967 and made it into a car of the future. After students restored the car and converted it to electric, Wired reports they used an Arduino — a microcontroller device that makes it easier to program and automate interactive projects — on the electric drivetrain of the car. Learn more about their “social media car” in the the video above.

Social Media ‘Storm Chasers’ Take Grave Risks

When Tim Baker began racing to the front lines of unfolding natural disasters 18 years ago, it was just him, his video cameras and the tornado. But those “good old days” are over. Now, when Baker chases tornadoes, he finds himself joined by a mix of curious onlookers, amateurs taking photos with smartphones, and a growing cadre of self-made, semi-professional storm chasers — seeking adventure, wealth or at least exposure for storm videos distributed via social media. “In the last three years it’s become ridiculous,” said Baker, who spoke to HuffPost a day after the latest deadly twister carved its way through central Oklahoma , part of a landscape known as “Tornado Alley.” When he’s going after twisters, he’ll see as many as 15 to 20 cars joining him, many with local license plates, the drivers armed with amateur equipment like small video cameras and smartphones that can record HD video. Whether any storm chasers were caught in latest Oklahoma storm remains uncertain, but a surplus of viral videos posted to the web offer testimony to the increasing prevalence of the amateurs Baker routinely sees. “They don’t weigh the risks,” said Baker, who was featured on The Weather Channel’s “Tornado Road” in 2008.
